On Monday 9 April 2018, the report of the Stakeholder Advisory Group workshop was published.

The workshop report provides an overview of the activities and discussions that took place during the first SALIENSEAS Stakeholder Advisory Group workshop, held on 25 January at UiT The Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø, Norway. The workshop was inspired by a participatory approach, in order to give prominence to the perspectives and needs of the various stakeholders involved in maritime activities in the European Arctic.

The core purpose of the workshop was twofold: 1) to identify the most pressing issues around metocean information availability and access, in terms of sector-specific needs to increase safety and efficiency of operations; and 2) to formulate a plan for efficient and relevant data collection from end-users.

Invited stakeholder representatives have extensive expertise in Arctic marine operations, and their knowledge will be considered in the assessment of service needs throughout the project. Each participant brought a unique perspective to the workshop, which contributed to gaining a comprehensive view of marine mobile sectors’ metocean information needs in the European Arctic.

We thank all workshop attendees for their time, ideas, and expertise.
